The Score (2001)

"Like The Score itself, there are moments when we get a little lost, when we even get dull for a while. But if approached right, growing older can leave us feeling invigorated. Just like The Score." ‐Seattle Times

A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)

"For every moment it frustrates, there are a dozen that amaze and provoke us, asking us questions about the meanings of life and love." ‐Seattle Times

Baby Boy (2001)

"Maybe if Singleton didn't try to repeat Boyz N the Hood with Baby Boy, he would've made a better movie." ‐Seattle Times

Series 7: The Contenders (2001)

"A gritty, disturbing and very funny satire that points the finger as much at its audience as those who make 'reality TV.'" ‐Seattle Times

Songcatcher (2001)

"The story plays like a giant cliché." ‐Seattle Times

Dr. Dolittle 2 (2001)

"It's silly, but it means well, which is definitely more than can be said about a lot of movies coming out this summer." ‐Seattle Times

Fast Food, Fast Women (2001)

"For all the off-key notes sounded by this story of an overworked New York waitress, a trio of her customers and a loutish cabbie, it never falls apart." ‐Seattle Times

Atlantis - The Lost Empire (2001)

"A movie that isn't really exciting, has characters who aren't very captivating and misses a lot of its jokes." ‐Seattle Times

The Man Who Cried (2000)

"We're never offended by any of this -- we're never exactly enthralled, either." ‐Seattle Times

Moulin Rouge! (2001)

"The colors and songs all come together to form a movie that is like no other before it." ‐Seattle Times

Pearl Harbor (2001)

"Bay takes the easy way out with this movie, shunning the real pain of the attack to concentrate on the shallow feelings of his stars." ‐Seattle Times

Angel Eyes (2001)

"A jumbled mess." ‐Seattle Times

Shrek (2001)

"The movie is helped immensely by its cast, who carry it through some of the early, sluggish scenes. But this is Murphy's movie. Donkey gets most of the good lines, and Murphy hits every one." ‐Seattle Times

Calle 54 (2001)

"What makes Calle 54 great is precisely what's missing from the other. Trueba shows us the creative act of playing music, not just a bunch of famous folks performing." ‐Seattle Times
Posted May 11, 2001

A Knight's Tale (2001)

"A meandering story packed with corny moments, mostly dull acting and a star who, hype aside, shares only an accent with fellow Australian Russell Crowe." ‐Seattle Times

The Luzhin Defence (2001)

"Has many beautiful moments." ‐Seattle Times

The Center of the World (2001)

"The characters aren't very interesting, caught in a cycle of sex and rejection that while explicit, gets a little tiring." ‐Seattle Times

The Mummy Returns (2001)

"Big and dumb and loads of fun." ‐Seattle Times

With a Friend like Harry... (2001)

The Circle (Dayereh) (2001)

One Night at McCool's (2001)

"The actors make the most of a predictable story line, and almost without exception the jokes are funny." ‐Seattle Times

Keep the River on Your Right (2000)

"Rather than observe events as they happen, the filmmakers force things, manipulating Schneebaum and the audience to serve their agenda." ‐Seattle Times

Beautiful Creatures (2001)

"A stylish film that is a fun ride despite a script that offers few surprises." ‐Seattle Times

Freddy Got Fingered (2001)

"Heinous, tiresome, does things with large mammals that are just plain wrong and includes some of the funniest scenes in memory." ‐Seattle Times

Hit and Runway (1999)

"Lose the story, keep the title." ‐Seattle Times

Amores Perros (2001)

"González Iñárritu spares no detail in his telling, creating an ambitious, starkly realistic movie that just happens to be way too long." ‐Seattle Times

Kingdom Come (2001)

"Despite an appealing cast that includes Toni Braxton and Cedric The Entertainer, Kingdom Come won't leave you with a happy feeling -- and it may just leave you feeling surly." ‐Seattle Times

Josie and the Pussycats (2001)

"It's hard not to wonder if the real point of the joke -- that kids are controlled by corporations -- wasn't just to create a 95-minute marketing vehicle." ‐Seattle Times

The Price of Milk (2001)

"Rather than being cute and magical, the film feels forced, a good joke that goes on way past the punch line." ‐Seattle Times

The Dish (2001)

"Shows us that when done with restraint, nostalgia can be fine." ‐Seattle Times

Roozi ke zan shodam (The Day I Became a Woman) (2001)

"Through Meshkini's lens, their stories are sad, funny, cathartic and beautiful." ‐Seattle Times

Blow (2001)

"Blow fades a bit in its second half, weighed down by a need to closely follow Jung's life. But even then, the actors are so compelling that it's just a mild discomfort." ‐Seattle Times

3/4 92%

Memento (2000)

"Memento becomes less a fascinating portrait of a damaged man than a typical revenge thriller. But it's still a very cool movie." ‐Seattle Times

Spy Kids (2001)

"One of the best kids movies in years." ‐Seattle Times

Too Much Sleep (2001)

"As a story, Too Much Sleep could inspire a little snooze of its own. But in images - in shots of Jack walking the suburban wasteland, of lawn sprinklers and discarded backyard toys -- it is nearly saved." ‐Seattle Times

Company Man (2001)

15 Minutes (2001)

"Two horrifyingly bad hours that should stand as a reminder to keep Hollywood away from big issues or anything else it can put in its mouth and choke on." ‐Seattle Times

See Spot Run (2001)

"See Spot Run, the new movie starring David Arquette is no good. It stinks, it's stupid, it's not funny." ‐Seattle Times
